Frequently Asked Questions

What is Platelet- Rich Plasma Therapy?

Your blood is made up of plasma, white blood cells, red blood cells, and platelets. The two important elements of PRP are platelets and plasma. Plasma is the liquid portion of blood while platelets play an important role in healing through the promotion of cell growth and regeneration.

How do Platelet- Rich Plasma Injections Work?

PRP is a non-surgical option.  Platelet-rich plasma is created by taking a blood sample for the arm and placing it into a device called a centrifuge that separates the other components of the blood from the platelets and concentrates them within the plasma. Essentially, Platelet-rich plasma is the blood that contains more platelets than normal. After creating the platelet-rich plasma, the solution is then injected into the target area.  The purpose is to increase the concentration of specific growth factors in a specific area to accelerate the healing process.

What can I expect?

Consultation

We will review your medical history followed by a physical exam and imaging. We will then discuss if PRP injections are the right option for you.

Initial Treatment 

All of our services are performed by licensed medical professions with the utmost emphasis on sterility, and comfort. In addition, your treatment will take place with privacy in mind (no large group treatment rooms). Your blood is then drawn and turned into PRP through the above process. Once your blood is ready, it is then injected into the problem area through the guidance of imaging.

After Treatment

The procedure should take no more than an hour. You can return to your everyday routine following the procedure. The effects can be felt after 4 to 6 weeks for joint injections.  For hair procedures the effects can be seen as soon as 2-3 months later.
